Goodbye Google Reader... Hello Feedly

Eeek! Google Reader will be no more from tomorrow. Have you found yourself a new RSS reader yet? I've only just got round to importing my Google subscriptions despite being constantly reminded by my BF who was on my case since Google announced the closure.

There are a number of readers available with one of the popular ones being Bloglovin'. If you're using it already then you can subscribe to this blog by clicking the button below:

Follow Pretty Digits

If you haven't chosen an alternative reader Bloglovin' is very easy to use. Just follow the step-by-step instructions and your subscriptions will be imported and saved.

There is also Feedly another Reader that's easy to use. The interface can be arranged so it's similar to Google Reader for those who don't want a huge change and the iphone App is very slick. This is the one I have chosen to use on my phone.

Don't leave it until it's too late!

Geometric nails using OPI Euro Centrale

Since receiving a set of 4 OPI Euro Centrale polishes from my BF I have been trying to come up with a mani that incorporated most of the polishes. I finally got round to it today.

Using Suzi's Hungary AGAIN!, Can't Find My Czechbook and Vant to Bite My Neck this simple looking geometric design was actually a real pain to do. Getting the triangles even and in the centre took some patience and not to mention the tape itself was damn fiddly.

Those who do a lot of tape manis hats off to you because I doubt I'll be doing another in a hurry! I am pleased with the results though and quite like the bit of naked nail peeking through.

Pink - Suzi's Hungary AGAIN!, Blue - Can't Find My Czechbook, Purple - Vant to Bite My Neck?
Hope you're having a great weekend!

Rave party on my nails feat. Lush Lacquer Clowning Around

I don't have many indie polishes in my collection not because I don't like them but purely because I'm too lazy to sit down and order them. This explains why it has taken me an absolute age to get my hands on  Clowning Around by Lush Lacquer despite falling head over heels the moment I first saw it online. Varied sizes of neon glitter suspended in a clear base may not sound anything special but looks can be deceiving because once on the nail (especially over a light base) this glitter comes alive like a little rave party.

The following mani could be my favourite EVER!

Winning combination:
OPI My Boyfriend Scales Walls
Boots 17 Monochrome
Lush Lacquer Clowning Around
I never want to take this off...
(I bought my bottle of Clowning Around from eBay as Lush Lacquer (etsy) no longer ship to the UK)

Glittery Nude using Barry M Lychee and Amethyst Glitter

The other day I decided to have a little look through my Helmer to rediscover some forgotten nail polishes. There are so many untried gems that I've made it my mission to swatch them or at least use them in a mani this month (famous last words).

Today I have for you Barry M Gelly Hi-Shine Lychee and Amethyst Glitter. Lychee is hands down one of my favourite nudes. The formula is wonderfully smooth and opaque only requiring 2 coats for an opaque finish. I found it dried really quickly and not to mention to a high shine. And it's perfect for my skin tone.

Amethyst is a mix of small blue, black, purple, red, pink and gold hex glitter in a clear base. It's a very pretty mix of glitter that is very eye-catching alone (3-4 coats) or layered over a base like I've done here.
I used Essie Matte topcoat
One layer of Ameythst over 2 coats of Lychee
I never really thought about using a nude base for my glitters but after this I'm definitely going to try it more often. Do you ladies have these polishes? What do you think of them and how do you wear them? Take care A x
